PCC proposes precept investment to improve 101 call answering - closes 26 Jan
As your Police and Crime Commissioner, setting the budget is one of my most important responsibilities. I must ensure that the Chief Constable has the resources he needs to provide an efficient and effective service.
Later this month I will need to make a decision about the policing element of the council tax precept. I am planning to ask the Police and Crime Panel to support my proposal to raise the policing element of the precept by £10 a year (for a Band D property) which will fund major improvements to the contact and control service.
In all my public engagement, including the recent consultation on my new Police and Crime Plan, the one thing that comes through loud and clear is the public’s dissatisfaction with the 101 service. It is absolutely crucial I address these concerns.
I would be very grateful if you could take part in the survey (link below) and let me know what you think. Could I also ask you to forward this on to others within your community and anyone else you think may be interested to comment.

The survey closes at 9am on Thursday 27th January 2022.
